Precision X/Afterburner don't show OSD and/or FPS on certain games - Page 2

post #11 of 22
So is everyone just using 32bit applications in their 64bit operating systems to get the OSDs to work?
post #12 of 22
Since when do you think that BF3 or FC3 is a 64bit app??? doh.gif
They are all 32bit LOL lachen.gif

And NO, we aren't using 32bit applications on our 64 bit OS's just to get a working OSD.

Only a few games are with 64bit executables and there's no real demand for AB or PrecisionX to make their OSD to work with them.

Thanks for the witty comebacks hotshot rolleyes.gif

God forbid you guys take it easy on a clear newbie. Where else am I suppose to ask these questions? Maybe Jeeves would know perhaps?!?


So, why then is either OSD not working in either game? I have followed all the applicable instructions I could find

I had this trouble once with Crysis 2 -- what my workaround was at the time was to switch the display from full screen to windowed in the game setup options after launching it, and then immediately back to full screen before starting a game. It just wouldn't launch on its own with OSD enabled for some reason.

Interesting, I will give that a shot when I get home tonight.

Hey, chill man, I was a bit sarcastic after seeing your post (#11) and looking at your avatar. I apologize for that.
It's funny in some way, I thought that you're staring at your monitor in the same manner like "that guy" in the pic.

Back to topic:
AfterBurner (or PrecisionX) has problems to show the OSD whit any kind of overlay. Are you using any?
But there are quite a few options to overcome that. It happened to me too in a few games, when I used some type of post process against aliasing (injectFXAA, Danoc's inject FXAA, SweetFX, etc.)

First, did you configured your MSI:AB like this?



Second, MSI On-Screen Display server is running in the taskbar?

I suggest to uninstall MSI:AB, delete all remaining data from that, restart your puter and reinstall (latest Afterburner 2.3.1)
Start from scratch and tell us what are your settings and with which game. I assume with BF3 and FC3...

If we are unable to help you, you'd better not ask the Jeeves... you should ask Unwinder, but please be polite and do a search before that.
I've done that and it didn't came up anything relevant.
There aren't known issues with the OSD, the problems reported by the users are usually, guess what: user errors.

Take care and report back. wink.gif

I tried both of your ideas and still nothing. I am using "Very High" settings on both as my 670's can't quite support Surround on Ultra at all times. I have added every possible .exe I could find that was related to both BF3 and FC3. I have even tried both Precision X and AB individually as well as simultaneous with various settings on and off. Can you see why I am frustrated?

I was being sarcastic about Jeeves tongue.gif


Edit: No overlays either

In order to have OSD, the RTSS.exe process must be running - that process is dependent on Windows Event Viewer service. If that service is inactive, then you have a problem.
Please check (Ctrl+Alt+Del -> Task Manager) if you have the eventlog under the Services tab!

Here is my RTSS config for BF3:

RTSS.exe a running process and my RTSS config looks exactly the same. What else could it be?!?!
post #20 of 22
Well, I'm reaching for **** now, but there's a checkbox for enabling compatibility with modified DirectX runtime libraries in the OSD. You click on the wrench button to access it.
